Polaroid Photo Quilt #6 - Final Spurt

I am very pleased with the progress I have made with the Polaroid quilt over Easter. I pieced the top, pieced and preped the backing fabric, made a little quilt label out of one of the extra polaroids, prepared the layers and quilted the the blanket in simple straight lines. The latter is due to me not having mastered (let alone begun making the first baby steps) in free motion quilting or any 'proper' machine quilting.

As I will not be in time to learn FMQ for this particular project, straight lines will have to do. The quilt top is so whimsical and busy anyway, that I don't think missing quilted ornaments will matter greatly in this instance. Here I was just about to iron the backing fabric.

While I busied myself with the quilt blocks, I spied the following animals (the list may be incomplete): tigers, horses - even winged ones, mice, cats, dogs, owls, an octopus, monkeys, a donkey, ants, butterflies, bugs, toads, a salamander, chicken, snails, bears, a moose, a deer, foxes, song birds, bees, cranes, rabbits, a pheasant, fish, elephants, a zebra or two and ducks. Half a zoo really.   =)

I am exceedingly pleased with the outcome and hope that all the volunteers are equally happy with how the blanket looks so far.

I converted one of the extra polaroids into a simple quilt label. All that remains to do, is to make some bias tape, in yellow I should think, to bind the quilt. I have five blocks left and considering my current energy levels, I have to admit that I am not going to manage two more quilts at short notice. Therefore, pillowcases it will have to be. 

I am off for the final spurt. I will keep you posted.
